Jean Waters moved that the public be allowed to take at no charge one (1) pick-up load of compost per visit until gone or as determined by the operator.  Fran Zerby seconded.  Motion carried.


A press conference will be held on July 12, 1999 to inform the public.  Ladd will contact Mark Scott about featuring an article in the Manhattan Mercury.


Ladd will take an organic matter sample of the pile and have the results available to the public upon request.


A suggestion was made to use the press conference as a way to inform the public of other Transfer Station activities.
